Exploring Pacific Wharf At Disney California Adventure...

   This post started off as a quick restroom signage post...but then I realized that we had never blatantly explored Pacific Wharf as an area on this blog.  So here we are.
   Pacific Wharf is a very small "land" at Disney California Adventure.  For all of its shortcomings in size (and attractions...) it is well compensated in charm.  The theming of California's fishing industry  might be odd on paper, but it lends itself well to a general aesthetic where the chosen melange of restaurants can commingle.

   Pacific Wharf is nestled snuggly between Paradise Pier, Carsland, and a busy pedestrian throughway.  Because of this it is often overlooked as an area of the park, and prior to lunch, when the restaurants start opening, is often deserted.   Take this opportunity to enjoy some of the best views in the park.

View towards Paradise Pier. One of my absolute faves. 

   One of the most iconic photo opportunities in the park is also kind of overlooked and underutilized because of its location.  The walkway between Carsland and Pacific Wharf.  You would be surprised how empty this area can remain, while the rest of Carsland is FULL TO THE BRIM.  Again, this view from Pacific Wharf is one of my favorites.

   The industrial fishing processing theme seems to work in many situations, with just the slightest of tweaking.  Found in Pacific Wharf is Lucky Fortune Cookery (a Chinese restaurant), Cocina Cucamonga (a Mexican restaurant), a margarita stand, a Ghiradelli ice cream shop, and the Boudin Bakery Tour.  The bakery tour is arguably the only real attraction here, and is totally worth a visit even if your main objective is free sour dough bread pieces. 

  I'm really good at smiling. 

   For some reason or another I've neglected to take photos of the Karl Strauss beer truck...which makes me a horrible person.  Though the idea of a dedicated beer truck serving craft beer is clearly is great idea, Karl Stauss just isn't my favorite.  If you like nice flavorful bitter beer, stick with their Tower 10 IPA which is delightful.  Everything else was beyond underwhelming.   

   The fishing theme is carried over into these wonderful bathroom signs.  I would be a bad blogger if I didn't include them here.  Odds are, after eating at Lucky Fortune Cookery you will have to use these restrooms. 

   Performing regularly in Pacific Wharf are the Mariachi Divas.  Do yourself a favor and go out of your way to watch them perform.  This Grammy award winning group is beyond talented and their show is so much fun.  

   I hope you enjoyed this quick look at Pacific Wharf.  If you've learned anything it should be: Stick to the Karl Stauss IPA, eat free bread, enjoy the Mariachi Divas while enjoying one of several beautiful views.  You could also snag free chocolate squares at the Ghiradelli shop if your into that sort of thing.
